Business Agility Day

9th March 2018

Business Agility is the ability of an enterprise to respond to change faster than the rate of that change, resulting in high customer satisfaction and profitability in a turbulent business environment.

To achieve this, organisations need to re-think and change many aspects of how they work, how they relate to their customers, how they innovate, how they build business strategies, how they make use of their financial resources, where they fit in their communities and how they engage their people.

These are not simple changes and they aren’t something that a senior executive can delegate to someone else to accomplish – the new ways of thinking and working have to start at the top with a fundamental rethink of what makes the organisation and how it works.

At Agile India’s Business Agility Day, we have selected sessions to explore the various factors that are necessary when whole enterprises become agile in the true sense of the word. The program will provide an understanding of how different aspects of the organisation can embrace agile thinking, explore the real challenges that organisations face when making these changes and highlight the business outcomes achievable when becoming an adaptive, agile organisation.

Knowledge Partner – Agile Alliance

In partnership with the Supporting Agile Adoption initiative of the Agile Alliance, the sessions on the Business Agility day explore the various aspects of this model and show how different businesses have adopted different ways of achieving the overall goal of becoming agile.

What can you potentially learn/gain?

To give a sense of what you could learn, this image conveys the important changes that organisations need to embrace when they aim to become truly agile in their thinking and execution. Starting from the customer at the heart (of both the image and your organisation), business agility requires agility in work, connections and mindset:

  1. The three domains under the Work Dimension govern how an agile organisation operates. From Technical Agility at the individual activity level, to Process Agility at the value stream level, and scaling to Enterprise Agility at the organisational level.
  2. The Connections Dimension governs the relationships that form within and outside the organisation. Structural Agility that defines the relationships between individuals, teams & divisions, Leadership Agility that defines the relationship with authority and Market Agility that defines the relationship with our users and the wider market.
  3. Finally, the Mindset Dimension is concerned with governing the key characteristics of an agile organisation; a Learning Mindset, a Collaboration Mindset and an Ownership Mindset.

Every aspect of the organisation is impacted and the whole focus needs to shift to putting the customer front and centre, with all areas and functions of the organisation seamlessly working together in the service of sustainable customer delight.
